Purple doll quilt

I absolutely love purple. This purple hand loom fabric was sitting in my stash for around a couple of years. So was this charm pack. I had a sudden inspiration yesterday while i was doing other mundane stuff around the house and voila! here's the result of that inspiration. :) I can now proudly say that i can finish a project in a day. The DH liked the quilt, which was a first. He also asked me very sweetly when the inspiration would strike me again......which i think was a bit sarcastic. Regardless, i am happy and i have vowed to finish atleast one more WIP this week. That will perhaps make a tiny dent in my stack of WIP's. Fingers crossed! :)

Resolutions and resolves to keep them.

Very early in my childhood, it learnt that it is a norm to make new year resolutions every January. As i grew older i also learnt (mostly from my own experiences) that most of these resolutions....normally made under the euphoria of a new year party or other influencing emotions....are never kept. I had, therefore, very prudently given up making resolutions. This year though, i have decided to play smart and make resolutions that i know i will keep. So here's my list - 

1. Finish all the WIP's from the last year. 
2. Learn to piece perfectly.
3. Learn to bake.

Now that's what i call doable resolutions. :)
